  1. Haven’t listened yet but wanted to let you know I’ve missed hearing from you and I’m excited to discover you’re releasing recordings again.

  2. My imaginary friend is the Overnightscape.

    The Baz Luhrmann Great Gatsby movie sounds even more obnoxious than I thought it might be. Thanks for confirming that I made the right choice to avoid it. I don’t feel directors need to be strictly true to a novel but when the tone of a movie is so far afield you wonder why they even chose the book other than to exploit it’s name recognition.
    I imagine the 1920’s to have been a quite fascinating and wild time and I feel when you feel the need to put hip hop and ultra glitz and hyper colors onto it you are suggesting the present is always somehow wilder and more exciting.

    I am so looking forward to seeing Nebraska. I look forward to the mid-western authenticity you mentioned.

    Good luck with the surgery.
